Ideas for layout of small laundry/utility room

grahamwJune 6, 2012

Hi all,

I'm looking for ideas on how to layout a small laundry room. The room, unfortunately, is shared with most other utilities (electrical panel, water meter, furnace, hot water tank and sump). I have Miele 24" wide machines that can be stacked if needed. Ideally, I would like to get both machines in AND a small(ish) laundry sink but this cannot be too close to the electrical panel. And, of course, some flat space for folding/ironing would also be great... Does anyone know of a small, deep, 3-sided laundry sink that I can squish in beside the machines as drawn? I'm not afraid of custom cabinet work if it is needed.

Thanks everyone!

Can you place the washer and dryer on the angled sections of wall and place a small sink between, where the WD currently sit? You could certainly put a folding table against the wall where the electrical panel is.

You could also try the dryer against the right angled wall and the washer next to it with the front corners touching and put the sink on the left angle wall and build a shelf above both the washer and dryer and also along the wall with the electrical panel.

We're in the process of finishing up a remodeling of the laundry room. It's so exciting!

Have you thought of and could you change the swing of the door to perhaps swing out into the adjacent room and perhaps onto the outside wall of the water heater/furnace. This would free up quite a bit of space in the room.

Though you've indicated where the electrical and water meter is, if you could take a picture of the area so we can get a better idea of how this area could be better used. It's unclear of the clearance needed on the wall itself (height, depth).

The bayed out area where you have the W/D looks like it might provide for some great architectural interest w/o having to spend a lot of money.

Another suggestion (assuming there's room) is to install pocket doors. They would never be in the way at all.
